  • Remain calm.
  • Locate the tooth and pick it up by the chewing surface (not the root).
  • If the tooth is not dirty or broken you should attempt to reinsert it into the empty socket.
  • If you can reinsert it, have your child hold it in place by biting on a clean cloth or piece of gauze and go directly to your pediatric dentist.
  • If you cannot reinsert it (or if the tooth is dirty or broken), put the tooth in a glass of milk and take your child (and the tooth) immediately to your pediatric dentist.
